POSTPONED - Spring 2020 – NYSDEC Region 3 – POSTPONED

Promoting a Toxic Free Future for New York State

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and in concert with the Governor’s office and local and national public health officials, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has postponed the April 2020 CleanSweepNY collection program in NYSDEC’s Region 3. This is in an effort to limit group contact and to maximize public healthcare needs.

A Spring 2020 CleanSweepNY collection is anticipated, however, but at this time it is unclear when the collections will take place. This information will be posted here when it becomes available and requests for the registration paperwork can still be made and completed forms can still be returned for processing.

Planning is underway for a Spring 2020 CleanSweepNY collection event that will take place in four locations in NYSDEC’s Region 3. This region covers Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, Ulster, Sullivan, Orange, and Rockland Counties. This will be the 28th CleanSweepNY collection event and over two-million pounds of various chemical wastes have been collected for proper disposal across the state of New York.

Participants must register to participate in this waste collection program and registration forms can be requested at the following phone number or e-mail address:

Telephone: 877-793-3769
E-Mail: info@cleansweepny.org

CleanSweepNY staff look forward to providing this valuable service to those eligible entities that have waste chemicals for disposal which can potentially contaminate New York State’s environment and beautiful outdoor areas.

The collection dates and locations are as follows:

Kingston, NY ?
Middletown, NY ?
Fishkill, NY and ?
Valhalla, NY ?

CleanSweepNY Services are Not Available to Homeowners.

CleanSweepNY services are provided to farmers and owners of former farms, all categories of NYS certified pesticide applicators, cemeteries, golf courses, marinas, schools, landscapers and lawncare providers, nurseries, greenhouses, and other entities possessing unwanted or unusable pesticides and other waste chemicals. Each participant is responsible for transporting their materials to the collection site. CleanSweepNY results in enhanced stewardship of the environment through the improved management and proper disposal of unusable pesticides and other chemical wastes. These materials may pose human health risks upon exposure and represent a potential hazard to New York State's groundwater and surface water resources.

The collections are scheduled and organized by NYSDEC with the collaboration of NYSDOT who generously provides sites for the collection of these unwanted chemical materials. CleanSweepNY is supported by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Agricultural Container Recycling Council, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, New York Farm Bureau, and other related grower associations.
